Chris lives near Cambridge with his wife Ruth and 3 children. He is a street evangelist and artist who founded The Light Project, a growing network of people who actively demonstrate the Christian message and train others in theology and evangelism.
Chris’ passion is to help churches work together across towns and cities in creative and Holy Spirit empowered ways in sharing the good news of Jesus.
Chris currently serves as the city centre chaplain in Peterborough and runs an emerging arts centre in the village of Great Gransden. He is an author and his most recent book 'Big Hearted' is described by John Drane as ‘invaluable inspiration– though for church life as it now is, it needs to carry a health warning!’
I pray that you will find something good and challenging in this hodgepodge of a collection of poems. I hope that as you read them, somehow you may encounter the presence of the One who loves us and gave his life for us and sends us out to let the world in on what we've got.
Smack Heads and Fat Cats is a gripping challenge to love people who are not yet followers of Christ and to give them an opportunity to experience what it means to be a Christian. It is a call to engage in the adventure of being the good news.
Written in three parts it outlines: a vision for evangelism; a biblical mandate for why we should be good news; and how we can do evangelism.
This book is for anyone whose heart longs to share Jesus with others, but whose head has warned ‘don’t’ . Chris and Simon show us how we can have a creative partnership with God, using the gifts we have already, to be effective big-hearted missionaries right where we are.
